I voted. I always vote. And I voted for Trump.
My father taught us that voting was not just a right, it was a responsibility for every citizen. My grandparents from both sides emigrated to America from Ukraine in the early 20th Century. I think my father viewed America as a huge blessing, in light of the never-ending persecution and slaughter of the Jewish people.
My father would say to us “America may not be perfect but there is no better country.” After WWII my dad realized that this country was truly the only one which supported the State of Israel. He also knew that the chances of a mass slaughter of Jews would likely never happen in the U.S.
In these last days, I’m not so sure of that.
On August 28, 1941, more than 23,000 Hungarian Jews are murdered by the Gestapo in occupied Ukraine.
The German invasion of the Soviet Union had advanced to the point of mass air raids on Moscow and the occupation of parts of Ukraine. On August 26, Hitler displayed the joys of conquest by inviting Benito Mussolini to Brest-Litovsk, where the Germans had destroyed the city’s citadel. The grand irony is that Ukrainians had originally viewed the Germans as liberators from their Soviet oppressors and an ally in the struggle for independence. But as early as July, the Germans were arresting Ukrainians agitating and organizing for a provisional state government with an eye toward autonomy and throwing them into concentration camps. The Germans also began carving the nation up, dispensing parts to Poland (already occupied by Germany) and Romania.
But true horrors were reserved for Jews in the territory. Tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews had been expelled from that country and migrated to Ukraine. The German authorities tried sending them back, but Hungary would not take them. SS General Franz Jaeckeln vowed to deal with the influx of refugees by the “complete liquidation of those Jews by September 1.” He worked even faster than promised. On August 28, he marched more than 23,000 Hungarian Jews to bomb craters at Kamenets Podolsk, ordered them to undress, and riddled them with machine-gun fire. Those who didn’t die from the spray of bullets were buried alive under the weight of corpses that piled atop them.
All told, more than 600,000 Jews had been murdered in Ukraine by war’s end. – source (Emphasis mine)
I fully understand why my father loved and cherished America. My father was saved before he died in 1997. I am glad that he did not have to experience the 8 dark and demonic years of Israel-hating Obama.
This Last Election
Voting is certainly not a spiritual act. I remember the words of Jesus when the Pharisees attempted to trick him by asking if it was lawful to pay taxes to Caesar:
“But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites? Show Me the tax money.” So they brought Him a denarius. And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” They said to Him, “Caesar’s.” And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (Matthew 22: 18-21).
Jesus clearly showed the people that an earthly government had nothing to do with the Kingdom of heaven. To those of us who belong to the Lord, the election may have been about moral issues, but it was not a spiritual act.
It seems that many Christians believe that voting for a Conservative was indeed an act for which they might receive a crown in heaven. This is ludicrous and is harming the body of Christ.
Many in the Church have gone back to sleep
WAKE UP CHURCH! We have much work to do for our Father! Are we not to share His Glorious Gospel to add souls to His Kingdom? This is not our home; we are merely passing through.
We ARE to speak out against abortion. We ARE to defend the sanctity of marriage, regardless of the heinous decision of the SCOTUS which changed the Biblical definition of marriage.
Yes – we ARE to do what we know is right. But the reason that our Father has allowed us to be here on this very day, is to be salt and light in this increasingly dark world! Millions are dying in their sins and will spend eternity in hell!
The Changing Church of the Great Falling Away
Are you attending an apostate church? How would you know?
- The pastor does not preach on Bible prophecy
- Hatred for Israel is spewed from the pulpit
- The Church replaced Israel in the eyes of God
- Gays are ordained as pastors
- Pastor does not preach on Salvation
- Emphasis is on financial prosperity
- The Word of God is not held as inerrant and infallible
- Mysticism and New Age practices are embraced
- A push for returning to Rome (Catholicism)
- Teaching that Jesus is not God
- Teaching that there are many ways to God
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
This statement from our Lord Jesus does not leave any room for debate. And because He is the only way to the Father, we MUST be about our Father’s business while we are still here. How will people know what Jesus meant by this passage of Scripture if we do not tell them?
So we must wake up, brethren. You did well when you voted in the last election. Many of us voted the Bible; and what that means is that we voted for the person whose views on moral issues were closer to the Word of God.
But that was not an act of Spiritual service to God. He wants His people to repent and turn from their wicked ways. He wants His people to tell others how to be right with Him. He wants His people to put Him first in their lives.
